Fascinated by information, I love learning about many things.
One of the ways this manifests itself is when I’m with my friends and we begin speculating about a topic. I usually grab my phone and look it up to understand it correctly. Or when my team at work is sitting around talking about a movie or a song or … anything … I will be the one turning to my computer to look up the random piece of information we were discussing to make sure we get it right.
Isn’t that just the normal thing to do? You have a question, so you look for the answer?

When their parents die in a tragic accident, Molly Bennett and her siblings pull together to fulfill their parents’ dream: turning their historic home back into an inn.
Adam Bradford (a.k.a. bestselling author Nathanial Grey) is a reclusive author with a bad case of writer’s block. Desperate for inspiration as his deadline approaches, he travels to a North Carolina lake town, the setting of his next novel. There he immediately meets his muse, a young innkeeper who fancies herself in love with his alter ego.
When Molly finds an old letter in the walls of her inn she embarks on a mission with Adam to find the star-crossed lovers and bring them the closure they deserve. But the guest she invites along has secrets of his own. Past and present collide as truths are revealed, and Molly and Adam will have to decide if love is worth trusting.
I would like to thank Celebrate Lit, Netgalley for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
Adam was adorably bookish. I loved that his nose was crooked from being broken – by a large book! He had a habit of spouting random facts when he was nervous. And with the research he did for his books, he had plenty of random facts to spout!
He was also very insecure as his father had always made him feel as if he was lacking because he was more cerebral than athletic. So he wrote under a pseudonym, fearing that his readers would reject him for not being more like the heroes he wrote about.
Paralyzed by grief, letting fear dictate her actions and color her perception of the world, Molly struggled with trust. Especially after being hurt and lied to in such a big way.
The mystery of the letter from the past was very cleverly woven into the story. I liked the excerpts from Ben and Lizzie’s summer romance. There was just enough to not distract from the main storyline and enough to make me want to find out what happened to them. And I will say that I was completely shocked by the truth Adam and Molly discovered!
This was a very enjoyable story, filled with romance and mystery. There are hints of spiritual elements that come through especially as Molly learns to overcome her fear and her grief and as Adam learns to be confident in the man he is.
If you enjoy sweet summer romances, Lake Season is a great story to add to your library.
